One Texas Soldier

A large group of Taliban soldiers are moving down a road when they hear a voice call from behind a sand-dune. "One Texas soldier is better than ten Taliban".

The Taliban commander quickly sends 10 of his best soldiers over the dune whereupon a gun-battle breaks out and continues for a few minutes, then silence.

The voice then calls out "One Texan is better than one hundred Taliban".

Furious, the Taliban commander sends his next best 100 troops over the dune and instantly a huge gunfight commences. After 10 minutes of battle, again silence.

The Texan voice calls out again "One Texan is better than one thousand Taliban".

The enraged Taliban Commander musters one thousand fighters and sends them across the dune. Cannon, rocket and machine gun fire ring out as a huge battle is fought. Then silence.

Eventually one wounded Taliban fighter crawls back over the dune and with his dying words tells his commander, "Don't send any more men, its a trap. There's actually two of them."

  2. Any American soldier is better than any number of Taliban...just sayin'.

  3. Thank a Veteran today. Our soldiers are the best in the world.

  4. Sandee,
    lol, they don't wanna mess with the best

  5. Huzzah!

    And a big thank you to all of our veterans and active duty personnel today!

  6. Well, Texans do have a reputation to uphold, but, if we checked ID's on those two, we might find they came from any one of the fabulous 50 states. Just saying...

    Having served in the Army, I am sure of that.

    However, the thought just occurred that only one of them was a Texan and the other was glad to have him watching her back. (Keep it clean folks. snerx!)

  7. Our service members are top notch,even if there are a few bad apples in the bunch.Thanks for the tip of the hat.

  8. Ours are indeed the BEST!

    Big hugs, honey...

  9. I didn't know that Texans soldiers were the best.
    Thanks for the info.

  10. I don't know who is the best, but of course it is important to be able to count :-)

  11. Ha! Those texans are tough.

  12. Not far from the truth.

  13. oh that's a good one! they could have said a redneck!

    smiles, bee

  14. Wooo WEEEEEEEE! That was a zinger ;-)

    Big sloppie kiss from old Speedy

  15. Hahaha...only 2?!?

    have a great day.

  16. Since I'm from Texas and am a former soldier I know they are smarter than 1000 taliban too.
    I was expecting 1000 Texans behind the hill, not just two.

  17. That was a surprise ending -- for sure! Thanks for sharing, Sandee!

  18. hahaha, t'was great story, 2 soldiers is a surprised!

  19. If that one Texan were a Marine, this would be a rock-solid fact ;-) From any other service, 2 Texans are a match for any number of Taliban ;)

  20. Everything's bigger in Texas!!! Great one for 11/11!!!

  21. Hooray! I love it...and hope it's true where it counts!

  22. This is really funny. Hope you will post some more quotes for us to read.
